finally

Thinking thoughts dark and dire takes a great deal of energy
My step falters.
My joie de vivre drains like a bathtub and the world seems a howling wilderness.
The negatives of life do not make good companions.

If I choose to mull and ponder, it might as well be the beautiful and creative, the unexpected gifts and kindnesses of life remembered.
Thoughts matter.

“Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is worthy of respect, whatever is just,
whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if something is excellent or
praiseworthy, think about these things.” Phil. 4:8

That's a lovely thought and much needed two days after the so-called most depressing day of the year!! Thoughts do matter.
